Thanks for the report, @darnoldussen.

It looks like you're hosted on WPEngine and something is interfering with the login screen (which is used to set the post password cookie) and causing it to be redirected to HTTP.

You should contact WPEngine's support and ask them to look into the issue.

Please do feel free to re-open this ticket if the issue appears to be a WordPress problem and not one specific to your host.
